Grant Writing VISTA at SCKMC

Legacy Foundation, a regional community foundation, has identified South Central Kansas Regional Medical Center (SCKMC) in Arkansas City (KS) as a local organization in need of capacity-building projects, such as networking and grant writing. Nestled between two rivers at the edge of the beautiful Flint Hills, SCKMC serves a rural population with poverty rates of at least 19% (according to 2015 census figures), significantly higher than regional and state averages of 12-15%. SCKMC has undergone financial crises since its opening in 2014. Should SCKMC remain status quo, the facility is projected to have additional losses each year reaching a $3.9 million annual loss by 2020. If the incurred debt is not addressed SCKMC will likely fail, leaving the City of Arkansas City and its citizens responsible for the bond payment even if the hospital is no longer open or functions in a limited capacity, and severely impacting access to adequate healthcare.VISTA members will help to build financial stability with the initiation of funding through grant writing and network building.VISTA members should be self-motivated, organized, detail-oriented and embrace working collaboratively. The successful VISTA will be a great listener, employ a positive attitude, model servant leadership and energize others.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
